Amy Winehouse could be coming to a city near you….which would be fine, except she passed away two years ago.
We’ve seen Tupac rise from beyond and hit the Coachella stage, and now Amy Winehouse might just follow his lead. The Sun reports that Amy may go on a world tour as a 3D hologram.
“The idea is in its early stages, but it’s hoped that Amy’s dad Mitch will maybe join her and do the introductions,” says a source in the story.
Billionaire Alki David is behind the plan, which would use the same technology that put Tupac Shakur on the stage at the Coachella Music Festival in 2012. That show so impressed David that he bought the rights to the technology. In fact, his film and hologram companies sued Cirque du Soleil and MGM Resorts this week for patent infringement over a hologram of Michael Jackson used in Vegas, reports the Hollywood Reporter.
Hmm…we can see the use of a hologram for a one-time performance, but an entire tour seems a bit ridiculous.
